Eleven Fifty Six (6/30/20)

Poem By Jasmine Williams

The bells of freedom are ringing.
If I could touch that sacred brass,
Just beyond my desperate grasp.
I see,freedom seized with bravery,
from the binds of corporate slavery.
I want freedom from my enemies.
These imperceptible chains are stifling.
I want freedom in its entirety.
I ask, is freedom just that far from me?
I want freedom from societies' hate disease.
I'm drowning from my inner demons.
Death is so close, I cannot breathe.
Desireso potent, you wouldn't believe
For freedom, I'm screaming.
In the bowels of darkness,
the freedom bellsring.
In the midst of my falling asunder,
the freedom birds sing,
Just near the freedom waves.
So close to the freedom thunder.
Yet,freedom doesn't exist for me.
And I am befixed to wonder.

It stole all my gifts
My soul, my passion, my love
Now everything is lower than the sea
So lower than should be, it is lower than me

Response To Edgar Allen Poe's Alone

On my darkest day in May
Our paths converged a dissimilar way
I too, enamored by the demon in view
He had taken from me what he took from you

This Is My Mother.

She smelled of cigarettes
She looked like hell with legs
Her voice was laced with insolence
Always grating to my head

Death To Your Pride

Corrupt are your morals
Death to your pride
Shrouded in darkness,
Robbed of light

A Baby Was Born

A baby was born,
To a mother stunted before her rise,
They clipped her wings before she could fly.
To a father lost in a world of lies.
